Using Layer Filters

As discussed previously, organizing objects into groups using layer names is very useful. But although it’s good to use layer names to organize your drawing, if the layers become too numerous, their usefulness degrades. The usefulness of layers degrades because too many layers makes it cumbersome to use the Layer Properties Manager to locate the specific layer whose properties you need to edit, or whose behavior you need to change. The more layers a drawing has, the more their usefulness degrades.

More than likely, you will work on drawings that contain dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of layers. This is especially true when you attach xrefs to the current drawing, adding to its list of layers the layer lists of each xref. Therefore, the likelihood that you will be presented with the challenge of working with too many layers is very high.
